You may like red walls and think tiled bathroom countertops are retro-chic, but your prospective tenants may not -- ultimately you’re renovating to please.

Home mortgage loan payments can be a burden for homeowners struggling to make their mortgage each month. To help consumers find financial balance, Go Banking Rates uncovers key home renovation tips drawn from cable show, HGTV Income Property, whose seventh season airs this week, that identify how homeowners can not only increase the property value of their home, but also pull in side income by renting a section of their home to tenants.

With season seven premiering on HGTV on Tuesday, January 29th, Go Banking Rates compiles a guide explaining how the renovations on the series have been so successful.

“When it comes to converting your home into an income-driving property, it’s important to step back and remove your personal taste from the equation,” shares Jennifer Calonia of Go Banking Rates.

Ms. Calonia continues, “You may like red walls and think tiled bathroom countertops are retro-chic, but your prospective tenants may not -- ultimately you’re renovating to please.”

Making the commitment to convert a home into an HGTV Income Property-worthy residence can be unnerving, but the guide reveals McGillivray’s perspective on the move. “Becoming a landlord is very profitable. It’s a great long-term investment and it just makes sense,” explains McGillivray, “You can make a lot more money picking up more rental properties and collecting more rent, than you can get raises at a job.”
